Pictures @ Home

I took some random snap shot last weekend. It was a gloomy Sunday in Davao and I just went home to check on my mom and dad when the urge to take pictures for the day took over.

I don't know if I have mentioned this before but we actually live beside the shoreline where most of my neighbors earn a living through fishing. Isla Verde as popularly known is an Island not known in the map of the Philippines, if so that would make out for the 7,108th island in our country. I honestly don't know if it is included in the map of the Philippines in a National level. It disappears during high tide and appears at low tide where the gravitational pull of the moon is lesser, but due to some improvements made for Isla Verde, we experience less high tide now compared to 5 years ago.

Big Boy na ako!

Tumataba na ako. Ewan kung dahil sa depression or sa biglang change ng schedule ko. Promise, pag ako nag pakilo today... puputok ang scale.

I went to the barber shop last Sunday. After my super boring session with Mr. Barber, I went out feeling refreshed and hilarious. I never looked this way in years. The last time I cut my hair too short was 2 years ago. I feel okay but I still get those questioning look even after a week of having a new look.

Varied reactions.
"what was he thinking?" thoughts everywhere
You look fat in your new hair!

I will do a series of flashback entries in the coming days. I just have to upload the photos I've gathered for my new project. I'm super excited!

I have started attending a new class for commercial cookery. It's great actually plus the fact that the whole class is for free. No registration fee, no payment for the ingredients, nadda what so ever. Last time, the preparatory class was a computer class on MS Word and MS Powerpoint.

I am not just a big boy. I am a super fat boy now.


me and that faraway look

You promised me
You said I'd be the first to know...
You said we would celebrate together...
You never said it would never happen...
but you promised to make me a part of it...
I should have known better
promises are made to be broken
especially if it is a promise from you..

and now you're far away
so glad you left

pick-a-PIC: an Introduction to "I say"

Inspired by Mr. Joseph Paras, I edited my picture through picnik.com. This creative filled task led me to a new inspiration. This time with little creativity and more stupidity, I will be posting a weekly series of edited pictures with "I SAY..." on it.

It hopes to inspire...
I hope to make you happy...
I hope I can do this...

I Don't Know You Anymore

This is the first and the last time that I will write about this Sh*t. This entry is full of sh*t, it stinks like a septic tank but I am posting it anyway.

It all started 10 years ago. He was new to the whole private school scenario and he was alone. On the corner of the classroom he saw a girl who looked so familiar, lonely and alone as he was. She was familiar because they used to bump into each other in some events, they lived in the same world, they clicked from then on.

They started an unnamed relationship. It was unidentified and unmarked, nothing whatsoever. Together they dreamed of making it to the list of Forbes riches people, together they soared high, together they laughed at uncanny things normal people wouldn't laugh at, together they stayed. People often would ask them if they were an item, no they were not. Their bond is more than any one could imagine and if it were a landmark, it would have passed as the 7th wonder of the new world.

They had rough times along the way. And now they are still at it. This maybe the toughest test of the 10 year roller coaster ride. She may have forgotten but this is history repeating it self. 7 years ago they were at the same spot, the spot that made Tork and Martha resign from the group. They were young then, it looked cute, funny and forgettable, but not now, not after 7 years.

He is not talking to her anymore, “silence is the best revenge” he said.

She is not talking to him anymore. She maybe afraid of rejection or is just pissed off of him giving himself too much credit to interfere with her life. She said “I am old enough, I know what I am doing”

With that he left leaving no footprints behind. Nothing, not even a hint that they know each other. Maybe 10 years ago would have been better setting for this. They would shout at each other when they fight, misunderstandings were always made known to the populace, everybody would have a say and at the end of the day everything would be okay. But 10 years ago is long gone, we now have our pride as big as Mt. Fuji and I don't bend down when its not my fault. You may remain oblivious of what you did and how you disappoint me.

Lastly, let me remind you of the day I defended you when Clark and Jane asked you to choose between us and him whose name should not be mentioned. I told them not to do it because making a choice is always difficult (at least that choice). Maybe I did that because I don't want to hear you choosing him over us and I should have hinted that the day would come when making a choice is all you should do.

Don't worry.... when I see your name at the second spot of Forbes Magazine list of richest people in the world, I will smile, because by then I will be on the number one spot...bwahahahah


Night out with College Friends

Last Friday me and my college friends went out of our busy lives to enjoy a night together. With no clear agenda, no event to celebrate, no reason for getting together, a text was broadcasted and calls were made.

We had dinner at Pronto Mario. The food was great as usual plus we get to annoy other customers when we started playing word factory before and after eating.

I have visited Pronto Mario a dozen of times but I always forget to take a snapshot.
Mental note to do it the next time I visit.

After our dinner we went to Gmik for our usual videoke and drinking session. Though we had to squeeze in a small room and deal with the "not so efficient" AC unit, we, never-the-less had a blast.
